There is huge opportunity here for you to transform your most mundane tasks, such as doing your laundry and commuting to work, into a valuable study session. Here is an overview of the leading CPA audio review courses on the market today.
Wiley CPA & Yaeger CPA - Impact Audio Lectures Series
Yaeger CPA Review and Wiley CPA Review have teamed up in an effort to combine quality lectures with modern technology. These courses are taught completely via audio format and are iPod and MP3 compatible. Something cool about this course is that they give you the ability to store and play files on multiple devices. You are also able stream the audio online as well as on a mobile device. The cost and length of each section is as follows:
AUD (5 hrs): $125
BEC (11 hrs): $125
FAR (18 hrs): $125
REG (13 hrs): $125
All 4 sections: $445
This courseware is designed for any MP3 compatible player and comes in a CD format, which you can then download to your computer and sync your IPod to. Also included is a resource CD that has the Lambers Textbook in PDF format on it as well any workbook the professors use during their lecture. The cost of each section is $200.
I’ve talked to several people who have found success using this course (specifically pointing out how good the auditing section is). This course offers a more comprehensive and in-depth audio review than anybody else and was created to serve as your primary study course rather than supplemental material. Here is a breakdown of each section:
REG (36 hrs): $300
FAR (45 hrs): $300
BEC (25 hrs): $300
AUD (27 hrs): $300

The full course costs $520 and only comes in a CD-rom format (no mp3 download). Judging by the quality of their computerized review course I would say that this is a terrible investment, especially since you can get the Wiley/Yaeger Audio course for less. However, I have not personally used it yet so if you or any of your friends have I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.
If you looking for an audio course to supplement your normal study routine then I would definitely suggest Wiley and Yaeger’s Impact Audio Lecture Series. I have gotten very positive feedback about this course and it is available for a very decent price. Their materials are much easier to access than the other courses because you can download as well as stream the lectures anywhere that has an internet connection. This course would also benefit anyone who plans on using it as a final review before an upcoming exam.
If you an auditory learner and plan on using an audio review course to serve as your primary study material then I would suggest getting Lambers IPod Course. This course is a much more comprehensive and in-depth audio course than any other you will find and I have heard several good reviews about it from other CPA candidates. Also included with this course is the resource CD that contains the Lambers Text Book in PDF format as well as an electronic workbook that contains the instructor notes and hundreds of Q&A’ s
